Welcome to ChemBAM!

We are a group of chemistry researchers who are keen to share our work through a range of resources and interactive activities. To read more about us, follow this link.

The ChemBAM team is currently mostly based around Birmingham (UK) and the Midlands. If you are based in the area and would like to request us to run a workshop in your school of community group please click here for more information.



Chemistry is a hugely important subject and chemistry researchers are tackling some of the biggest challenges facing our world. If you’d rather get going on some activities, head to our list of experiments.

The website is currently edited by chemists Ruth Patchett,  Zoe Schnepp, and Nicola Rogers with many contributions from a whole host of scientists.

Global Challenges

The world’s population is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, and our planet faces many global challenges. The sciences, and Chemistry in particular, play an important role in many of the global  issues below, affecting our daily lives, the future of technology and our standards of living.  More information on the role of Chemistry in tackling global challenges can be found on the Royal Society of Chemistry website.

Individuals, communities, companies and nations all have a role to play in tackling inter-connected global challenges, in order to provide every person across the globe with water, food, energy, healthcare, and a home. Chemists play an important part in this, and  are developing new technologies to address many of these issues, from water purification materials to new batteries and solar cells.






If you are a scientist and would like to contribute to this website please contact Zoe Schnepp at the University of Birmingham. If you want to find out how to use our resources for outreach activities, take a look at the following page.
